An iconic figure of early Futurism, Russolo was born on 30 April 1885.
In 1913 he published his revolutionary manifesto ‘The Art of Noises’, calling for the integration of a range of different sound effects into musical compositions. To this end, he developed rudimentary instruments called intonarumori (‘noise-intoners’) to replicate the screeching, hissing and roaring of the industrial age.
Here is our tribute to his work.
